Channeling musical talent from an early age, Ryan Leslie went from Harvard grad to music mogul. He rose to stardom in the music industry as a producer and songwriter with a mix of industry heavy hitters such as Beyoncé, LL Cool J, Britney Spears, and, notably, Cassie on “Me & U,” which went to number one on the R&B charts.While supporting other artists, Leslie also dabbled in the music scene with his own music, releasing two albums within nine months – Ryan Leslie and Transition. The latter received a Grammy Award nomination and highlights Leslie’s songwriting while telling the story about the rise and fall of a summer romance. Later this year, Leslie plans to release his third album, Les is More. He premiered the first single “Beautiful Lie” in Paris and “Breathe” in San Francisco. As famous for his savvy social media presence as his production talent, Leslie is quickly gaining worldwide attention for his unique R&B styling and sensual voice.
